it is 5:01 on this tuesday. well, it's back to work day in washington, d.c., where the house is preparing to vote on raising the nation's debt limit, a move the president has pushing for. susan mcginnis tells us how the deal was reached. >> reporter: they had their dance. and taken a moment to savor the scene. now it's time to get back to work. in his inaugural speech, the president called on both parties, not to let politics get in the way of governing. >> we must act, knowing that our work will be unperfect, we must act knowing today's victories will be only partial. >> reporter: republicans are offering a compromise on the debt ceiling, house g.o.p. members are backing off a requirement to cut $1 of spending for every dollar the debt ceiling is raised, a move the president has demanded. >> it's believe it's a recognition of political
5:01 am
reality. we realize the president won the election. >> republicans on capitol hill are not voting to raise the debt ceiling without getting something in return. they say in order to approve a higher debt limit, they want senate democrats to do something they have not done in four years, pass a budget. >> for us to have a debate about spending and debt we've got to have the focus be on a budget and what we're going to do to achieve a balanced budget over time. >> senate democrats view a vote as an opportunity to raise more money through taxes. >> it's going to be a great opportunity for us, because in our budget that we will pass, we will have tax reform which many of my republicans like but it will include revenue. >> the increase will likely happen tomorrow. one other provision of the debt limit vote is either chamber of congress fails to pass it, the members will not get paid till they either pass a budget or until the 113th congress expires at the end of 2014. the big question for
5:02 am
football fans around here is, are you going to the super bowl? >> for most, the answer to that question is no. cbs 5 reporter cate cauguiran has details. >> reporter: season ticket holders were entered into a raffle as to how many tickets have available in that raffle, the niners have not said but those winners will be announced today. as for those niners fans that are not season ticket holders, the super bowl high could come down the moment you see the prices. fans right now are flocking to the web, to give you an idea, stub hub has them starting a little over $2000. at the 49'ers team store in palo alto fans told us the seats they are investing in are the ones in their living rooms. >> are you going to the super bowl? >> unfortunately i'm not. >> are you going? >> no. >> yeah, i wish. >> are you going to give me
5:03 am
tickets? >> why not? >> it's too expensive. >> reporter: the niners are not offering tickets to the general public, just the raffle for season ticket holders. odds are there won't be a lot raffled off. the dome holds 76,000, the niners get 13,000 tickets. those have to be split between players, staff, and then the season ticket holders. there is good news, the likeliness is that most likely those season ticket holders will sell the tickets and we're not including nfl and other teams, so that means more opportunities for us. reporting live in santa clara, cate cauguiran. another great seat is on the couch, the best seat in the house. >> and the cheapest. >> we're your super bowl station. donna from san francisco, look at her fingernails, you can see the golden gate bridge, sf

5:45 am
they have a retirement account. additionally, everyone can shield some cash from federal financial aid calculations, the amount is tied to the age of the oldest parents, older parents get a break because they are near retirement. >> how is the exemption determined? >> reporter: there's an education asset protection work sheet that details the amount. let's say the older parent is 50 years old. the couple can shield $40,900, including education fund assets like 529 plans. if parents have more than that, the surplus is assessed at a rate of 5.64%. so, again, if our parents saved $60,000 for college, their expected contribution for a year of college is about $1100.
5:46 am
what's the lesson here? saving sixty grand might have meant they missed out on loans or financial support, they didn't really get whacked that hard for saving it. i want to underscore saving for college is important. it's hard to qualify for aid, loans are expensive. on we have everything you need to know about college loans, the landscape is changing, kids graduating with debt, almost a trillion dollars in education debt right now. >> when in doubt, give it a try. if you get denied, you get denied. >> reporter: just filling out the form increases the likelihood you'll get it. you know the answer if you don't fill it out. >> thank you, jill. >> 5:49. the rain will make a return to the bay area, not today though. high clouds streaming across
